Google goes down after major BGP mishap routes traffic through China
"Google lost control of several million of its IP addresses for more than an hour on Monday in an event that intermittently made its search and other services unavailable to many users and also caused problems for Spotify and other Google cloud customers. While Google said it had no reason to believe the mishap was a malicious hijacking attempt, the leak appeared suspicious to many, in part because it misdirected traffic to China Telecom, the Chinese government-owned provider that was recently caught improperly routing traffic belonging to a raft of Western carriers though mainland China...Unlike the previously reported 30-month event that routed Internet traffic on a roundabout path through China, traffic in Monday’s incident involving Google never arrived at its intended destination. Instead, as the following traceroute shows, the traffic terminated at an edge router inside China Telecom. The dropped traffic further supported the narrative that the routing event was a mistake. BGP hijackings are more effective when they go undetected by end users instead of causing an obvious outage. Still, there was no doubt that even if the mishap was inadvertent, it amounted to a major disruption."

Malaysia to replace imports with domestic material - Resource Recycling News
"Permits will be issued for operators that meet the new criteria, according to the government. But it’s unclear when that could happen. Besides making regulatory changes, officials stopped issuing permits for scrap plastic effective immediately.

“They did not really have a time frame when they will start to accept the applications of approved permits,” Wong said in a phone interview. “The only way people can import will be regrind; regrind is imported under a different tariff code.”

If and when permits are issued again, imports will only be allowed from the U.S., the European Union and Japan, explained Wong, who has met with key Malaysian government officials in recent weeks and has firsthand knowledge of the regulations."
